STEM4Real - Professional Learning Communities
STEM, CCSS and NGSS Professional Learning Through an Equity and Justice-Centered Lens
We help you create STEM instruction that inspires identity and belonging for your students, #4Real
We as educators have the power to create a school to STEM career pipeline that celebrates diversity and representation. It starts with how we reach our students. Every school deserves the means to make that happen. "Every child, regardless of race, ethnicity and socioeconomic status, should be able to see themselves in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics." It starts with us.
We need to do the internal work necessary to dig into our own biases and experiences with respect to race, identity and belonging.
This is not another PD. This is an educational movement
Trust me, we’ve all been in Professional Development where we were talked to for about 6 hours by people that are far removed from the classroom. Teachers left bored and student outcomes stayed the same.
As a teacher, researcher, instructional coach and administrator, I know the importance of high quality professional learning. We’ve created a system that combines CCSS and NGSS standards with equity and social justice at the forefront of our work.
Through Lesson Study Cycles and ongoing instructional coaching using the STEM4Real Framework of Connect, Create, & Cultivate, our educators walk away with vetted lessons and pedagogical strategies that prioritize equity and anti-racism, especially for our most vulnerable student populations.
“When the system is dysfunctional, there's no one person that's right or wrong; everyone is just at a disadvantage”.
There’s a lot of hard work between where our schools are now and where we need to be in order to achieve educational equity. We want to give you the roadmap that will allow for our students’ success in STEM, #4Real!
